TOPEKA âÂ Itâs the old cliche for Bremen softball at the Class 2A Westview Sectional â the Lady Lions are taking it one game at a time.
So far, so good.
PLYMOUTH â As a final tuneup for the sectional the pitching couldnât be much better, but there are some questions remaining for Plymouth at the plate as the Pilgrims pulled out a pitchers duel with Knox at Bill Nixon Field Monday night, 1-0.
A battle between Knoxâs Davey Johnston and Plymouthâs Joey Dragani ended with the Knox (6-17) defense flinching in the Plymouth sixth and Dragani dealing a one-hit shut out as his final tuneup headed for sectional time.

WALKERTON â State representative Tom Dermody was applauded for his efforts to secure state recognition of the Hawk Band of Metis Indians Saturday at a ceremony on the tribal grounds in the Walkerton and Koontz Lake area.
âPeople of many nations have come together today in the sacred circle,â Rev. Terry âRedhawkâ Harris said during the ceremony. âTom (Dermody) told me, âI will get this done. I donât take no for an answer. I work for the people.ââ
ARGOS â Annexation procedures for the recently-purchased 75 acres on 17th Road between Michigan Road and Pond Street came before the Argos Town Council at its regular meeting Wednesday evening.
Town Attorney Derek Jones reported that after a search of the Indiana statutes, he found that the Council would need to complete a fiscal plan and hold a public hearing before annexation could be completed. He will prepare a draft of the plan to present at the next regular meeting.
During citizen input, Jan Heuer questioned the purchase of the land and the reasons for it.

âIt is indicative of the coaches who mentored me, the students who worked hard to excel, and the wonderful staffs I worked with over the years,â he said. âThis wasnât won by just me.â
